Shift rotate snapping to some odd angles in v26.0.1

I was working on some artwork yesterday which involved duplicating groups of objects then applying rotates of either 90 or 180 degrees. For speed I was using rotating using mouse at corner of group and holding down shift to snap to nearest 45 degrees. When I took a good look at the artwork I could see that several (not all) of these groups were not actually at eithr 0, 90 or 180 degrees, but imprecise ones like 180.65 or 90.25 etc. This was enough to make things look skewed. So I did some test with Illustrator. If I inputted a manual rotate transform figure this was absolutely precise. If I zoomed right into the group I was rotating, again this was precise. However when zoomed out to view whole artwork whilst rotating a particular group this was where it could apply odd imprecise rotation amounts. It's like it is some kind of incorrect snapping.

 

Has anybody else experienced this? I've never noticed this with any previous version of Illustrator.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are facing. I would request you to share a few more details like:

  • Operating System
  • Is the issue related to a specific document? If yes, could you please share the document with us? You can upload it to the Creative Cloud (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/share.html) and share the download link.
  • Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates, plugins, or web extensions installed recently.
  • Does resetting Illustrator Preferences (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html) help to resolve the issue?
    Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.
  • A small video demonstrating the issue could be really helpful.

 

We are here to help. We just need more information.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini
